Another Keeping Them Honest report: A freshman congressman claims President Obama gives "special waivers" to Muslims during TSA screenings. It’s not true. So why did he say it? Joe Johns tracked him down to ask.
Yet another example of the long-running attempt to smear the POTUS. I have several friends who actually believe Obama is Muslim, and swore in on the Qur'an! Sometimes I feel like some people just want a reason to hate Barack HUSSEIN Obama, no matter how ridiculous or untruthful. The question is : How can we combat these lies? How can we train people to be objective and reasonable, so attention can be focused elsewhere?
I felt your condemnation for high school's trying to curb cheering at graduation missed the mark. Why in our society do we have to continue to celebrate the individual over the group. Schools cannot simply wait for the celebration to subside, I have attended graduations that were chaotic and people blew horns, and celebrated for a long period of time for their one child, project that out to every parent then having the "right" to do the same. It is better to have parents wait until all the graduates' names are read and then celebrate loudly all together. I am not sure about either the arrest or the community service being appropriate actions but sometimes we sanction rudeness without guidelines for behavior and really, if you are so happy your child graduated from high school, that you must publically celebrate,throw them a nice party and invite all your neighbors.
